Hafiz Saeed has not been released: FO


ISLAMABAD (9Newshd): Pakistan’s Foreign Office spokesperson Dr. Mohamamd Faisal on Thursday dismissed media reports over the release of outlawed Jamaat ud Dawa (JuD) chief Hafiz Saeed.

Dr. Faisal during the Foreign Office’s weekly press briefing spoke in detail about the situation in Indian occupied Kashmir after Article 370 was abolished.

In response to India’s media reports pertaining to the release of Hafiz Saeed, the Foreign Office spokesperson categorically said, “Hafeez Saeed has not been released.”

Last month, Counter-Terrorism Department officials arrested Hafiz Saeed in Gujranwala, Punjab. The JuD chief was charged with gathering funds for banned outfits.

Hafiz Saeed’s arrest was hailed by US President Donald Trump who tweeted, “After a ten-year search, the so-called mastermind of the Mumbai terror attacks has been arrested in Pakistan.”

The arrest of the JuD chief is part of the Government of Pakistan’s crackdown against outlawed organizations under the National Action Plan. For more latest news Pakistan, visit 9newshd.tv
